For more than 100 years, independent retailers have relied on the Cost of Doing Business Study to help them strategize for long-term success.
As the industry’s leading financial benchmarking tool, the Cost of Doing Business Study provides a wealth of information to help independent operators understand how they compare to typical and high-profit hardware stores, home centers and lumber and building material outlets.
Are your transaction sizes within industry standards? Are there opportunities to lower your total operating expenses without sacrificing sales? With the study, retailers can compare their most important financial metrics to industry averages to see how their operation is faring.
By participating, you’ll receive a free copy of the final study (valued at $499); a Personalized Financial Analysis with your company’s finances compared to industry averages; and a what-if scenario generator to visualize how small financial changes within your organization can have a major impact.
There’s still time to contribute your information to fortify the study. All submissions are kept completely confidential and no individual data will ever be published or shared. For more information and to submit your financial information today, click here.
